to pass. harry reid said something that is discouraging today bub the president seems he's going to try to shoot the moon here, but not with a gun. >> he does, and i think we look at what the vice president said, some of the options some of these 19 possibilities for executive action to take on gun control. you know, we talked about them before, but some could be new limits on guns imported from overseas reminiscent of what george h.w. bush did. health and mental records. these powers are within the presidency, also to put somebody standard head of the a.t.f., and a lot of funding for the a.t.f., which is a lagging agency. they'll be charged with enforcing these gun laws. by strengthening the a.t.f., he is going to be doing some strengthening. >> cenk: when you block over countries from importing more guns here, it helps the n.r.a., because they represent american gun manufacturers, gives them a bigger monopoly. the check on mental health, if that's the only thing they do, that was an n.r.a. proposal, too. it's not nearly good enough. that's not the only thing they are proposing, and i

country. >> john: an assault weapons ban that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying, harry. the american people do too. while you're at it, maybe congress could follow new york state's lead. because today governor andrew cuomo signed into law the toughest package of gun measures in the nation. the new law expands the state's assault weapons ban. requires background checks to buy ammunition. increase penalties for multiple gun crimes. creates a statewide gun registration database and requires mental health professionals to report patients they believe are likely to harm themselves or others. nowhere in the list do you hear about feds coming to your house to take away your form of entertainment. but as new york congressman steve israel said today more federal and state actions are needed too. >> if those weapons can permeate new york's borders, it makes it tougher. >> john: for more, i'm now joined by a key figure in the guns debate, virginia democratic congressman bobby scott is the ranking member of the crime

and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and other people predicted he would, keep the public pressure off now and mayor bloomberg is determined to do that. that's in the cover story. maybe then you get real pressure on the members and see action. rig

on the assault weapons ban. jay carney was asked yesterday, even harry reid and all of these other people are saying it's going to be impossible to get that through the house. carney's response was, we are not looking at whether or not it's politically feasible or not. we are looking at whether it's the right thing to do for it. we are going to push for it. we are going to fight for it even if we don't get it done which i think that's what the american people want. the president's package will also include a ban. we are not sure whether it's 10 bullet did or seven or whatever on the high capacity magazines. it will include some crackdown. this probably by executive order on gun traffic trafficking in guns increasing the penalties on that. maybe it's a combination. we haven't all of the recommendations. there are certain things the justice department can do in terms of more aggressive enforcement. we are also told that the president's list of recommendations will include 19 things that he can and will do by executive order including more research into gun v
